Iraqis dare to take sovereignty seriously

Seems that folks in our newest colony thought that our talk about giving them sovereignty was serious. Now they're upset that our British allies busted two of their soldiers out of an Iraqi jail. Officials in Basra say they will not cooperate with coalition forces until Britain formally apologizes for the raid; they are also asking for the return of the arrestees to Iraqi custody, and compensation for casualties and facility damage from the jailbreak.

This comes after the recent condemnation of a UN Security Council resolution giving the US military immunity from Iraqi law by Justice Minister Abdul Hussein Shandal.

Geez, these guys thought we were serious when we "handed over sovereignty"? Can't ya take a joke, fellows? Wasn't it obvious when we illegally invaded your country that we don't give a rat's ass about the "sovereignty" of any nation that gets in the way of our brutal and stupid foreign policy?
